New fish-keepers are quite often impatient to set up their aquarium and want to add their new, expensive fish as soon as possible. This common misstep can have disastrous results that may discourage beginners from ever trying again. The book uses detailed photographic sequences to follow each stage of setting up an aquarium in real time over 10 weeks. Setup starts with the installation of the substrate and life-support systems and progresses to when the first fish are added two weeks later. The book then follows the development of the aquarium's environment during the next eight weeks, as the tank turns from an artificial into a living ecosystem. With expert counsel, clear instructions and simple-to-follow illustrations, Setting Up a Tropical Aquarium Week by Week is the essential reference for the first-time tropical freshwater fish hobbyist.
